WILLS jewelry knowledge sharing [How to choose rubies]

Before purchasing ruby, it is important to understand its basic knowledge.

Ruby refers to red corundum, which is a type of corundum. As one of the "Five Most Precious Gems", ranking only after diamonds, it is the first of the "Colored Gems", rare and precious, and has the supreme status in the gem industry. As one of the most precious gemstones in the world, its faint red light, like a flame, gives people the feeling of passion, dreams and love.
Origin
The main origin of rubies is Myanmar , which produces the highest quality rubies with bright rose red color . Next is Mozambique , which produces rubies ranging from pink to deep red in color . The lower quality rubies are produced in Thailand , which are darker in color , lower in transparency , and appear dark red or brownish red .
color
The first thing to consider when buying rubies is their color . Ruby comes in many colors , the best being a deeper, pure red . Among them, pigeon blood red is the highest quality , a bright rose red color , which is enough to reveal the most touching beauty of rubies . Next is a slightly purplish red , then a darker pink , and the worst is a brown or light pink ruby .
Fire color
It means the color displayed on the front of the ruby ​​when illuminated by a light source . The sparkling fire that can be seen when the ruby ​​is gently turned . The brighter the fire, the higher the quality .
Ruby production is rare, and the harsh natural environment makes rubies more or less imperfect. A richly colored, transparent and flawless ruby ​​is even more rare.
Therefore, experts invented a unique process based on this characteristic of ruby ​​- commonly known as " Heat Treatment ".
The optimization method of "burning" ruby ​​can improve the color of the ruby, reduce internal flaws, and increase the transparency and fire of the ruby ​​without changing the properties of the ruby. Moreover, this method is regarded as a normal processing method in the industry and is a process widely accepted by the market. Even if it has been burned, the ruby ​​is still classified as a "natural gemstone".
"Fired" rubies can be worn, and the market price will be relatively low; "unfired" rubies have higher collection value and are much more expensive than "fired" rubies.
cut
The cutting method of rubies is different from that of diamonds . They are not cut according to geometric designs to achieve maximum refraction effect , but based on their own body color . For darker rubies , the ideal cut would be lighter than average to allow more light to pass through the stone . For lighter-colored gemstones , darker cuts will be used to enhance the color of the gemstone .
Cleaness
Any natural gemstone will have impurities . Rubies have many natural flaws and often have naturally occurring cracks, so rubies with high clarity are more precious . Flaws in a ruby ​​do not necessarily affect its quality and value . It mainly depends on the location of the flaw within the gemstone and whether it affects the visual effect .
If you want to find your favorite ruby, remember to find some reliable and reputable companies!
